Who says home improvement can’t be sexy? This fabulous “Home Improvement”
wedding shower amazed guests with all the theme related details.

holding a miniature tool. The tiny tools were actually mini ornaments for small
Christmas trees. The assortment included: hammers, drills, wrenches, saws and
As guests arrived, they saw the amazing zebra cake with pink rolled-fondant toolbox
holding Chick Screwdrivers. Also on the table was a pink hardhat, pink ladies work
gloves and a Cake Saw.
The guest tables were covered in black fleece with paint splats cut out of white vinyl
in the centers. On top of the faux spills were clear acrylic paint cans with zebra print
paper inside. A paintbrush was placed beside each can and instead of confetti, small

and serve the salad. In addition, there was a Pizza Boss Saw used to slice up the
The Bride-To-Be had to “gear up” to cut the cake. She donned the pink hard hat and

Invitations were enclosed with rhinestone encrusted purse mirrors and lipstick
pens in an organza drawstring bag. The pink tri-fold invite featured silhouettes of
three ladies in formal attire on the front. Rhinestones were affixed to accent

tables. Mirrored mosaic candle holders sparkled throughout the evening.
Champagne flutes with Lindemans’ Framboise and Peche were filled and ready
as guests arrived. Actually a Belgium beer, these bubbly beverages tasted like

Dean Martin. As the evening progressed and the guests were letting their hair
down, so to speak, more current tunes were heard by Flo Rida, Kanye West,
Lady Gaga and more.
The evening was all about feeling beautiful and being pampered. A massage
therapist was there to give shoulder, back or foot rubs.
As a parting gift, lipgloss packaged like chocolates were placed in silver pastry
wrappers and arranged on a cake stand. And, for those ladies that weren't able
to find diva attire, bowls of jeweled rings were available as well as black and
white feather boas.
Towards the end of the evening, a contest was held to determine who was the
Queen of Bling, the Goddess of Almost as Much and the Princess of Less is
Ladies were asked to strut their stuff and compete for the prizes. Gifts included a
massage gift certificate, pink crystal champagne flutes and bling sunglasses.
